Spiced Prune Drink

Better Homes and Gardens Blender Cook Book [1971]

I will now admit that I have never actually drunk prune juice before now.  This is terrible, because all know it to be a warrior's drink. 

This is an improvement even on the original noble beverage. 

Spiced Prune Drink
1 cup prune juice, chilled
1 8-ounce carton plain yogurt
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in blender container; blend till combined.  Makes 2 to 3 servings. 

Verdict:  Quite pleasant, actually!  Sweet and tangy.  Could use a bit more cinnamon.  Besides which, the combination of intestine scouring prune juice and colon cleansing yogurt prepares the mighty warrior's body for battle.  Ever tried to fight Romulans and Borg while bloated and not-so-good feeling?  Not easy.  Down a gallon of this, and I guarantee you, that will not be a problem.  Just make sure you do so... well before you plan to defeat your enemies. 

Unless your enemy is constipation.  Which it well may be.

Husband thought it was too thick, but Baby claimed it was a delight both for the taste buds and the fingers.

Sounds delish but hope you didn't give that darling baby too much !!!

You actually made this look and sound pretty good. From the title of your post I was expecting horror. Yum(?)

My Dad used to drink prune juice all the time when he worked for MoPac. Apparently after being on the road so much and eating in greasy spoon diners he needed purging. I still, to this day, love prunes.

NB- no, she just had a couple sips. She needs no help in that department.

Mimi- thanks!

Michele- poor dad.

Sounds tasty. Think of it as a plum smoothie (prunes are fried plums, you know)
